Would you like to assist vulnerable adults to live an independent life?
We want to speak to you if you have:
 A motivated and flexible approach to work (which will include lone working, shifts, split shifts, sleep in duties and where necessary waking night cover);
 Sound values and attitudes;
 The ability to work with people in a positive and supportive manner;
 A willingness to gain a relevant SVQ II qualification is essential; and
 If you have previous experience of working with vulnerable adults, this would be desirable.
You will be part of a staff team providing support and care to service users in accordance with our aims, objectives, ethos and mission statement. You will play a key role in promoting social inclusion, maximising independence and choice for our service users.

Kingdom provides housing and support throughout East and Central Scotland. Our Support and Care Service provides a high quality, flexible service to people with a wide range of support and care needs. We are looking for individuals who are interested and committed to assisting vulnerable adults live an independent life.

These posts have an occupational requirement under the Equality Act 2010 which restricts applications from females only due to service users support needs.

Support Workers (Bank Staff) - Fife Wide
You will provide as required cover in any of our services.
Previous experience of providing care (not necessarily in a work setting) is desirable. We will provide you with training towards an SVQ in Social Care unless already obtained.

You will be placed at the unqualified rate unless you have achieved the relevant qualification as determined by the Scottish Social Services Council. You need be registered as a member of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme for the purpose of regulated work with protected adults and children. The cost of membership (whether a new or existing member) is borne by you.
